How long does a person with luekemia live?
Since no one can predict anyone's date of death, except GOD, a person with leukemia could possibly live until they die, same as people without leukemia. However, to speak in statistical terms, you would need to provide the type of leukemia, the stage it is, the age of the person and if the leukemia is treatable. If it is, well, they could outlive you! Do you have a monetary reason for asking? An inheritance maybe?
